Equilibrium is a leading global developer of decentralised technologies. We design, build, and implement solutions in critical, industry-defining projects for core Web3 infrastructure. Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Finland, Equilibrium is a remote-first, distributed company of ~60 people across ~20 countries including senior engineers, economists, and cryptographers. 

We work across three primary commercial activities: Consulting (high value-add engineering services, including end-to-end architectural design and implementation in blockchain and related systems), Venturing (internal studio for diversified, scalable Web3 products and applications through proprietary R&D), and Investing (capital deployment in large-cap liquid tokens and early-stage, illiquid Web3 related companies and technologies). We are a leading adviser to many of the most prominent, Tier I organisations in the industry, including Ethereum Foundation, Web3 Foundation, Zcash Foundation, Protocol Labs, Solana Foundation, Forte, Dapper Labs, and Aleo to name but a few.

Our teams are largely self-organising; they design their own processes and choose their own tools. We understand that each team and each project has different needs. We trust our teams to deliver and let them execute on project deliverables in the way they believe is best.

We are looking for an Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) to join our team to set up, tear down, rebuild, maintain, define and refine complex and mission-critical systems.
